Not Ashamed of Christ

DAY 1 OF 10

The Benefits of Salvation

What a wonderful privilege to know Jesus Christ personally! Because of salvation, we will someday enjoy a home in Heaven, a sinless body, and eternity with Christ. We all look forward to our future with Jesus Christ, but it's easy to forget about the benefits of salvation for today. Let's take a moment to remember a few of the many blessings we can enjoy every day as Christians.

We have access to God's power. In Romans 1:16, the Apostle Paul wrote, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." We who have trusted in the Gospel can experience Christ's power in our lives. As we yield to His work in us, His power transforms us to the image of Christ.

We have access to God's presence. Andrew Murray once said, "My prayer receives worth from being rooted in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ." Because Christ gave His life for us, we have the privilege of going into God's presence at any time throughout our day, but so often we ignore this wonderful benefit of salvation. Remember that you don't have to wait until Heaven to talk to God–you can talk to Him right now and enjoy His presence.

We have access to God's plan. People around us are wandering aimlessly through life because they have no real purpose without Jesus. As Christians, we know that God's plan is for us to bring Him glory with our lives. Take joy in knowing that God has a purpose for every day of your life, and follow Him as He leads you.

Growth Principle:

Thank the Lord for the blessings of salvation you can enjoy right now.
